Keeping up with the literature is a challenge everyone in the science faces. In January 2021, ECNP launched a new initiative to help the ECNP community by bringing them the most important new papers in each of the field’s key subject-matter areas.
Cell culture and live cell imaging
Biostatistics and computational methods
In vivo neuroimaging
- Cross-Disorder Analysis of Brain Structural Abnormalities in Six Major Psychiatric Disorders: A Secondary Analysis of Mega- and Meta-analytical Findings From the ENIGMA Consortium.
Opel N et al., Biol Psychiatry, November 2020.
Recommended by Florian Freudenberg, Germany. ''This article investigates correlation of structural abnormalities in a cross-disorder approach.''
- The genetic architecture of the human cerebral cortex Enhancing NeuroImaging Genetics through Meta-Analysis Consortium (ENIGMA)—Genetics working group.
Science, March 2020.
Recommended by Guido van Wingen, The Netherlands. ''The authors show that ~30% of the variation in the anatomy of the human cerebral cortex can be explained by common genetic variants, and that the variation in cortical structure is genetically associated with cognitive function, Parkinson's disease, insomnia, depression, neuroticism, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.''
- An electroencephalographic signature predicts antidepressant response in major depression.
Wu et al., Biotechnol, April 2020.
Recommended by Guido van Wingen, The Netherlands. ''This paper shows that an EEG signature can predict the response to sertraline for individual patients with depression. Patients with a low estimated sertraline response showed a beneficial response to transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), suggesting that this EEG signature may be used for treatment selection.''
